The Linley Group Seminar: Emerging Trends in High-Speed Interconnect Design

MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- June 1, 2006 -- On June 14, The Linley Group continues its Linley Tech seminar series with a free one-day event on High-Speed Interconnects and Switch Fabrics featuring technical presentations from leading suppliers including AMCC, Freescale, StarGen, PLX Technology, IDT, Tundra, Dune Networks, and Pericom. Interconnect technology, the nervous system for any computing or networking device, transfers control messages and data within the system to ensure there are no choke points. Increasing bandwidth demands and the unique requirements of data centers, networking, computing, and storage, are driving a host of interconnect technologies and standards, such as PCI Express, RapidIO, Advanced Switching, Ethernet, and proprietary.

The Linley Group, the leading supplier of technology analysis for semiconductors in networking, communications, and consumer electronics, brings together industry experts Jag Bolaria and Linley Gwennap, as well as architects and technologists from leading vendors to deliver information-packed technical presentations addressing the specialized needs of this market. The seminar wraps up with a panel discussion on emerging trends in interconnects. Following the seminar will be a reception providing opportunities for you to network with these industry leaders, analysts, and your colleagues.
